First Impressions {Home Exteriors}

Featured in Matchbook, Photographed by Charlotte Elizabeth, found on House of Turquoise
I used to watch HGTV religiously. But I'm gonna be honest, most times that a curb appeal show came on, I checked out.

But isn't the home's exterior just as important as the interior? Yes. It's the first impression, greeting your guests at the door and setting the tone for what they should expect to see inside your house. It sends you out for the day and welcomes you back home.

What's your favorite home exterior style? 
I'm totally torn between so many!

These are beautiful exteriors! My favorite style has to be Colonial. I am in love! But, alas, here in Arizona -- there aren't many of those around! ;-)

Holly said...

I'd take any of these!! :)

I love so many styles too - growing up in Holland, I always imagined myself in a stately older home by a canal in Amsterdam. Now, I love our cute cottage-y home in Canada.
Love that first mint green house and all the architectural detail on Jenna Lyon's house!

i definitely agree, the exterior of the house is just as important as the interior! these are all so beautiful! they make me want to daydream about my future (dream) home. ;)

Hi, love your blog! I'm excited to catch any academic tidbits or snippets from professor ramblings as your are in the midst of your formal schooling! I am a self-taught designer with travel, life, multiple dwellings, etc under my belt but I'm lacking in the academic side of the biz. I often times find old interior design textbooks on ebay and pour through them. So any light you can shed in your posts about key learnings would be fantastic for me to read :)

I am totally lost in these home exteriors. All the above are unique in their own way.

A good looking home exterior certainly adds extra style and an aesthetic appeal to your house. However, exteriors have a greater role to play. An impenetrable exterior acts like a protective armor.
